Tools worthy of a mention.

Recommended Posts

Bought some of that Ferrex cordless gear from Aldi  to stop the lads on landscape from taking my dewalt gear from the workshop out on site , bit of a confession here and have to admit its actually pretty good. Its a 20v/40v system where the 20v gear can be used with the 40v batteries  I have used the drill, screwdriver rattle gun and grinder, I also thought I would try the 40v chainsaw as they only need it to cut up the occasional sleepers and fence posts. The 20v/40v 5amph batteries last forever on the 20v drills and grinders, in the saw they also last as long as the batteries on my stihl battery saw that I keep in the machines. Nothing much here to not like with a three year warranty.

Knock off high lift jack from ebay. Had one already for 2yrs, just got a 2nd one.

 

Probably not as good as the real thing, but good enough for me

 

£36 in total - delivered!

Some places would charge you 20 quid just for the p+p on a small box to the Highlands 9_9

Got a bit stuck at home this week, with no tools, when the oil filter on the mitsy inexplicably managed to loosen itself. 

This worked quite well.

Socket set in at lidl at the minute, £35 and you get a lot in it, 1/2" and 1/4" drive, 4-32mm sockets, deep sockets, spark plug sockets, torx, hex, screwdriver bits etc etc etc

 

Seems decent enough quality, handy box for keeping in the van
